Charlotte Downie a Film and Television Year 2 undergraduate at LSFM posted about her 3-month Erasmus exchange at Alpen-Adria University, in Klagenfurt. She would recommend this international opportunity, that is open to FTV students only.
On hearing of the chance to live and study in Austria, I knew this was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss. I had never been to Austria, only known people who had been but the chance of learning a new language and to experience a different culture whilst living in the country was an exciting prospect.
Our 2014 graduate Hannah Skidmore tells us about a Higher Education project that has gone live this month with a final video. She worked as an Assistant Producer at Nik Morris Associates during the production of the HEARoes advert . It was released via The Student Room site. Hannah’s asking Universities for feedback about an online service for students:
HEAR, or ‘Higher Education Achievement Report’, is a service being rolled out at universities across the UK to record and verify the achievements and experiences of a student. They can can consult the electronic document throughout their studies, and it becomes fixed after graduation. The HEAR helps them find their path, it helps them better manage their efforts and time, it reassures them that unexamined activity contributes to intellectual and personal growth, and on leaving it helps them prove the value of everything they did during their university years.
Hello! I’m Rachel Hagreen, a third year Media Production student. This is my first official post as a LSM student blogger, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to hand out a few pieces of advice for first year students studying Media Production or Film and TV, although the advice will almost certainly be useful for any student!
Two years ago if somebody had offered me advice I wouldn’t have bothered reading it because if we’re being totally honest all we care about this week is being a fresher and we tend to put our courses to the back of our mind at least for the first week but here’s my first piece of advice: read this list of advice from fellow third year students and try and take it all in!
